Question about SWANN Home Security

1 Answer

I seem to have lost the connection from the dvr to my tv. I used to be able to go to video 1 and view the cameras but the tv now says no signal. I tried hooking the dvr to another small tv and got nothing. The dvr power light is on and the flashing red light indicates it is recording.

SOURCE: I GOT A SAMSUNG SOD14C , OKAY I WANT IT TO CONNECT

Well, your going to need RJ45.
RJ11 is telephony and has 2 pairs of wires. With that, you could use the Blue/Blue-White for power and the Orange/Orange-White for video. Then your stuck.
RJ45 has 4 twisted pairs.
To find out which has power, use a meter to measure your 24 volts.

SOURCE: I am attempting to repair a Digimerge VCE 308301

The problem did not have anything to do with the DVR (Digimerge VCE 308301). It did however, have everything to do with the cameras' power supply system.

First, I contacted the company's (Digimerge) tech department; and they were of no help since the DVR system is obsolete. There are no replacement/spare parts available; e.g. mainboard and daughter boards...and of course, they don't have schematic diagrams for the DVR either. And due to its obsolesence- there is no tech support. (It makes me wonder why, though, how security and electronic vendors can in good conscious sell this obsolete model DVR for $1,400 and upwards of $2,200.00 to the unsuspecting consumer/end-user.)

Since I was able to boot up the DVR system and access the BIOS menu; and considering that the screen was showing that it was in record mode- and the system BIOS was keeping the proper date and time, I believed that there was something else going on with the security system.

I contacted the customer and went out to their home- as I was about to hook up the cameras to each input behind the DVR- by happenstance, I checked the power supply panel to make sure that the power supply had been turned off (which the home owner failed to do). Having turned off the cameras' power supply, I then made all my camera hook-ups to the DVR. When I turned the power supply to the camera system on, I was able to get a video signal, hence a nice clear picture. I did check the voltage draw on each power terminal at about 12.5 vdc and a visual check on the infra- red led's on each of the security cameras were lit.

Problem solved, right!?...WRONG!

Several hours later, I received a call from the homeowner that his security system was not working again. The first thing I noticed as I pulled into the customer's driveway was that all the cameras' infra-red led's were out. I immediately placed my volt meter on the output side of the transformer at each of the cameras' power terminal- and waddya' know- I was barely reading over 1 vdc. Apparently- over time, the transformer starts to overheat and the voltage drops out. After it cools down though, the voltage resumes to 12.5vdc to power up the cameras.

This is my first experience working on a secuirty camera system so I hope this has been as much of a learning experience for you novices as it has been for me!

The DVR will be programmed with an IP Address via the DVR main menu function (network settings) and a valid password. The network viewing software (web viewer) you will need to ensure that the IP address is entered correctly for your DVR along with your valid user password.

Trust the above info is of assistance if you require a manual in order to check your settings try this link http://tv.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/samsung/samsung_dvr_product_list.html

The most common reason for loss of camera remote video is an intermittent cable connection between camera and DVR. Try monitoring with a VGA monitor, or TV with analog VGA input also to see if that is the case. Gently move the cables around that run from the cameras to the DVR while observing the multiple cameras showing on the monitor. Some remote viewing software has trouble restoring camera assignments after brief loss of camera signal.

Probably because the tv doesn't have the correct circuitry to play videos. If you have a VHS recorder connected to the tv, you could download the video to a tape and play it that way.

I just purchased a denon avr-1610 receiver and I cannot get picture back to my tv through the hdmi. I have a starchoice dvr which is dvi to hdmi, I come out of my satelite into sat/cab then out of my denon...


One possible reason is the HDCP (copy-prevention)-encoded signal from the DVR, which will transmits through to one device (the receiver) but not to a second (the TV). As an experiment and a possible solution, try reconnecting the HDMI cable from the DVR directly to the TV (provided you have an extra HDMI input on it), and using the component-video or S-video plus either digital or analog audio outputs to connect your DVR to the receiver. If this works, I think that the HDCP is the problem and this is the only solution.
It may be a little inconvenient to remember to switch inputs on the TV as well as the receiver, but you could probably program your remote with a macro to do both. The component video (or, more likely, the S-video) is also the best possible video signal you can use for dubbing to any DVD recorders, if you have one connected to the same receiver. You can still keep the HDMI connected from your PS3 (or other BD/DVD) player to the receiver, and from there to the TV, since that does seem to work -- if you don't mind turning on the receiver every time you want to watch a BD or DVD. My recommendation, however, is to connect all your video signals directly to the TV via HDMI or component, and use the receiver only for audio, or for switching of lower-level video signals like S-video that you can use for dubbing. That way you can always check the DVR or BD or DVD quickly without powering up your receiver, which takes a few seconds and much more power.

Blank screen with other displays still working


1. By View your DVR, Do you mean you can actually see a picture?
2. By "Switch Channels", are these channels being tuned by the TV Tuner?

Your LCD Panel is OK Since you have a Picture (input display in right corner)
If you can see a picture with your DVR, VCR, DVD or any external source then your TVs Video Processing is OK....if not you will probably need to replace the responsible PWB for this function
If you can see a picture with the external sources and only the TV's Tuner is not showing Video, The PWB responsible for Tuning within the TV should be replaced.

Also, if all problems are associated with only the DVR (I assume this is Sat or Cable), then it is most likely that this device is not functioning properly. Possibly lost signal or deauthorized.

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV


If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

Suggestion doesn't seem to apply to my tv


Service menu settings and resetting if still nothings happen. Then DVD works fine and then the signal strength is 95%. Then the problem is your cable card provider. They blocked your channel this is the common problem of card deactivation. Just try this, take the cable connection and put an ordinary outdoor antenna, if still not working then the problem is in the signal board , but if it's works ok then the problem is cable card activation...

Checking the Diagnostics screen 1. Make sure the RF cable is plugged securely into the CABLE connector (not the ANTENNA connector) on the back of the DVR.
2. Tune to a channel that is having a problem and press RECORD to lock the tuner to the CableCARD.
3. Press the TIVO button and select Messages & Settings > Account & System Information > Diagnostics. Look for the number of the problem channel, and then look below it for the Signal Lock setting.

• Signal Lock: Yes means the DVR is detecting a signal for the channel. In this case, the DVR usually cannot display the channel because either the CableCARD has not been activated or during activation the card did not receive the provisioning necessary to display the channel. For more information, go to
Step 4: Determining if the CableCARD is activated.

• Signal Lock: No means the DVR is not detecting a signal on the channel. If this is happening for only one or a few channels, this channel may not be in your lineup. For more information, go to
How Do I Determine Which Cable Lineup Is Mine?

If you see Signal Lock: No, and Test Channels could not display any video on the CableCARD, use the following procedure to check the signal connections.

Checking signal connections 1. Partially eject the CableCARD(s) so that they are disconnected from the slot.
WARNING: If you remove the CableCARD(s) completely, you must take care to replace them in the same slot. Switching slots will unpair the cards; to re-establish pairing, you will need to contact your cable provider.
2. Press the LIVE TV button on the TiVo remote control. Do you see video?

• If you see video, the CableCARD activation was not successful. For more information, go to
Step 4: Determining if the CableCARD is activated.

• If you do NOT see video, go to Step 3.

3. Plug the RF cable connection directly into your TV. Do you see video? • If you see video, go to Step 4.
• If you do NOT see video when the cable feed is connected only to your TV, contact your cable provider.
4. Reconnect the cable to the DVR and try the following, in order. Press the LIVE TV button and check for video after each step.

a. Check the cable connection on the back of the DVR. Make sure the RF cable is securely attached to the CABLE connector.

b. Press the INPUT button on your TV remote control to cycle through the settings. The Input setting must match the physical connection between the DVR and your TV (HDMI or Composite, for example).

c. Press the FORMAT button on the front of the DVR to cycle through the settings. This ensures that the DVR is sending a compatible signal to your TV.

d. If you have any splitters installed, remove them and then reattach the RF cable to the DVR.

5. Restart the DVR. After the DVR restarts press the LIVE TV button. If you still cannot see video, contact the TiVo CableCARD hotline.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.
